The featured cat of the week is back! For those of you new to We Live Inspired, I sometimes write about a feral cat colony that appeared in our neighborhood. For those of you not new, believe it or not there are several cats whose stories have yet to be told. If you are just joining us and want to browse photos and stories of cats that were featured in the past click HERE. Today you will get a chance to meet Mickey! Mickey is one of the 2 mascots for my website, so you may have noticed her before in the photo of kittens in a basket on the main website page. All photos/videos of her were taken at my parents house (this was before Matt and I became … Continue Reading →
One last set of photos to share from Christmas for (mostly) Wordless Wednesday. If you have been keeping up with my blog, then by now you know about my efforts to help a Feral and Stray Cat Colony issue in my neighborhood. All of the photos today are of colony cats. Some of them are the outside ones we help, and some of them are indoor ones that have now been adopted. This was their first Christmas! 🙂 We wanted to bring a little joy to their lives. If you would like to read more about the colony cats I care for and their stories, you can click HERE to be taken to the archives, or just look for the Cat Colony tab on my website. Looking out for the … Continue Reading →
It’s here! National Feral Cat Day 2012! This is my first time ever participating in an event like this. See below for a cat linky party for you bloggers ( I want to hear your cat stories too!), a very special creative video I made, and a Free gifts giveaway-all to celebrate this cause. Why am I doing all this special stuff for Feral Cat Day? Well, it hits close to home, (literally haha) as a feral cat colony seemingly showed up out of nowhere in my backyard and neighborhood late April of 2012. When I saw that first adorable kitty in the rain one day, I thought he was the only one. Within a couple of weeks or less, I realized I was wrong. There were at least … Continue Reading →
Today’s inspiration on seeking comfort was inspired by the newborn kittens (who were 1 month old when I took their pictures for this post last week). If you would like to follow the inspirational stories of their growing up days, you can click Here to read the story of the night they were born, or click Here to read the story of the day they opened their eyes. They are getting bigger now and are more active, so I let them have their run of the laundry room most of the day. Last week when I went in the laundry room, I couldn’t find the kittens anywhere. I have tried to “kitten” proof the room as much as possible, but I was concerned that maybe they had gotten stuck … Continue Reading →
If you read my very first 2 part Blog post (To Everything There is a Season), then you know about the birth of Fluffy’s 2 kittens. (If you want to catch up and read this story in miracles click here) Today the kittens are 3 weeks old. The white kitten started to open her eyes at around the 10 day mark and the black one was lagging behind about a day or 2. When they first started to open their eyes they were just little partially open slits. Now they are wide open. So cute! They are growing so fast…. The interesting thing about kittens is that they are born both blind and deaf! Their tiny little ears are folded in and of course their eyes are … Continue Reading →
Missed Part 1 of this Story? Click Here It happened on a Monday night around supper time. I went outside to care for the cat colony (you will learn more about that in the future if you follow my blog!) and saw a puddle on the back step. One of the kittens I had adopted, and was planning on bringing indoors this winter, had been looking chubby around the middle. I had guessed she was pregnant but figured she had a couple of weeks at least until she would give birth. Boy was I wrong! When I saw that puddle on the back step, I had this feeling that her water broke (even though I didn’t know the signs of cat labor haha). “Fluffy” ran over to me and climbed … Continue Reading →
Welcome to Live Inspired , My brand new website/blog (www.weliveinspired.com)! While my first blog story starts out a little sad, I promise you it is a story of miracles! Miracles are all around us. Some are tiny miracles , so you have to be on the lookout for them. Others are more obvious- like my blog story here today… ♦ A few weeks ago, my dog Kassie got suddenly ill and to make a long story short was in acute renal failure. We knew she was getting older, but she had been a seemingly healthy, happy dog until her kidneys stopped working. When we took her to the vet he talked to us about having her put down, but her pain had ceased, so we decided to bring her home. … Continue Reading →
